Diamond rings, a timeless beauty

http://www.3neshaneh.com/userfiles/image/-1993-2012-11/21~30/00/Ring2011/8.jpg

Silver, as a precious metal, has long been considered second only to gold. Its sheen and malleability has made it popular in the use of utensils, money and jewellery. It has also been used for preservation of foods where people in the early 20th century would put silver coins in pots of milk to prolong its freshness. This ancient metal sees its way into clothing as well to reduce odours, and decrease the risk of bacterial infection. Its other uses can be seen in mirrors, optics, dentistry, photography and electronics.

In jewellery, the silver used is sterling silver, an alloy of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. As it is malleable, it can be used to create all sorts of intricate designs. Its cheaper price also makes it affordable for many.

Silver necklaces(In Danish sølv halskæder) can best be complicated with pendants and stones. There are many lovely designs you can choose from online too. From movie inspired styles to those made famous by celebrities, your options for silver necklaces are limitless.

Diamond, meanwhile, has remained the stone of choice for jewellery throughout the ages. Prized for its remarkable optical quality, hardness and ability to withstand corrosive elements, it has continued to remain the most popular gem, especially for rings.

Seductive, speaking of wealth and status, diamond rings(In Danish diamantringe) have been immortalized through film and song. The Hollywood film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ starring sex symbol Marilyn Monroe crooning the hit number ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, has only added to its allure.

To add to its attraction, diamond rings can be chosen from five primary cuts, giving admirers a range to choose from. They include the ‘princess cut’, the ‘marquise cut’, the ‘round cut’, the ‘pear cut’ and the ‘oval cut’.

However, inspite of its appeal, this precious mineral has recently acquired some negative publicity. With reports of many being mined in conflict zones to finance insurgencies, there is much debate on their legitimacy. People have now been urged only to purchase diamonds with a Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), to distinguish them from conflict diamonds and help stop the trade of such ‘blood’ stones.

However, no matter the controversy, diamond rings will no doubt continue to fascinate mankind for their simplistic beauty and future rarity. An object loved since antiquity is unlikely to be unloved any time soon.

How to Keep Your Jewelry Safe and Shiny

http://www.brownsafe.com/preservingtomorrow/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Home-Safes-For-Jewelry.jpg

It is rare to find a woman or a man who does not have a jewelry box for these are the most obvious and practical place to store the jewelry they own. Jewelry boxes are those treasured items which are lined with velvet and keeps the jewelry safe from the element.

The question of safety and jewelry really depends on the type of jewelry owned. Many who own costume jewelry alone do not bother to use highly secured boxes for these are most likely made out of simple materials. However, if the jewelry in question is fine jewelry involving the use of precious gems, stones and metals, then the need to up the security is crucial to the safety of the pieces.

Many people may have their own safes in their homes which location they should never divulge to others. The safes are used to store in all of the important documents and items of the homeowner, however, these should only be used to store those items which are not that expensive.

For those who own very expensive jewelry which prices reach the hundreds of thousands of dollars per piece, then they should think about safety deposit boxes like those provided for in banks. These are the most secure of places to keep the jewelry safe, despite the fact that Hollywood movies make them very easy to break into, which they are not.

As to the question of keeping the jewelry shiny, now that is another topic altogether. If you have jewelry it is important to make sure that the box they are kept in is clean and lined with velvet and they go in clean as well. Do not just drop your jewelry on bare wood or glass for jewelry made from pearls, for example, have soft surfaces so they can get scratched. Wipe the jewelry clean before replacing in the box.

It is also important to clean the jewelry at least once or twice a year. But you should know how to clean and what to use for cleaning. Take for example gold, you do not just use metal polish on it, or even use toothpaste to clean diamonds set on gold. Only use warm, soapy water and the soap used should be the mild soap like glycerine soap. The softer the soap, the less abrasive it is on the jewelry. After brushing the item with soft bristle brush, rinse off very well until all soap residue are removed and then polish with soft cloth. Leave to dry for a few minutes before replacing in the box.

Note: separate the pearls from jewelry set in metal for they could damage the surface of the pearl.

How to Make Fabric Bridal Bouquets

Make a bouquet that you can treasure forever.
Though many brides choose to fill their wedding venues with countless floral arrangements, others recognize the environmental impact of cutting so many flowers for a single day’s decorations. Therefore, handcrafting fabric bouquets has recently come to light as a valid bouquet option. When selecting your fabric, you may either wish to use a shade that matches your wedding gown or a bold hue that coordinates with your wedding’s colors. Additionally, don’t feel as though flowers are the only option. With fabric bouquets, you can add a bit of glamour with some feathers or by adding vintage brooches to the arrangement.

Instructions

  1. Create a two-dimensional flower template. The template should be the size of the largest flower you want to include in your bouquet. It can have between five and eight petals. If you are unhappy with your designs, see Resources for an example template. If you want to create a flower with different layers of petals, such as peonies, cut out two gradually smaller versions of your template.
  2. Pin your template to the fabric and cut out the shapes required by your blossoms. Cut out as many as you feel your fabric flowers require. Small flowers, for example, only need about five layers. Large blooms, however, can use as many as 16.
  3. Stack the flower’s petals on top of one another, keeping the layers slightly uneven. This will add texture to the final product. You can add additional texture to your flowers by mixing different fabrics within each bloom.
  4. Place a pearl bead in the center of the stack and sew it in place from the bottom with five stitches. If your flower’s petals are all different sizes, pinch the base of the flower and continue sewing beneath the pearl bead so that the petals pucker. If your flower’s layers are all the same size, fold the stack of flowers in half and then in half again. It should now be a quarter of its original size. Sew the edge made up of the two folded edges together, finishing the seam with a knot halfway up the side.
  5. Unfold the flower and adjust the petals to your liking.
  6. Cut the floral wire into 14-inch strands and trim the edges off at an angle to make them sharp. Push an end through the base of each blossom and pull the wire through until the blossom is in the middle.
  7. Fold the wires down and twist the lengths until the flower’s stem is stable. Gather the fabric bouquet together and wrap a satin ribbon around the wires to cover them. Cover the base as well, as the wires’ edges can snag on things around them. Tie the ribbon off at the base of the bouquet to complete the look.

Simulated Diamonds Are the Symbol of True Love

If you are thinking of popping the question to your special lady, you must be on the hunt for the perfect engagement ring. Needless to say, it is tradition to present the lady with a diamond in order to ask for her hand. With diamonds being so expensive, you may want to consider an alternative, such as a diamond simulant, with a range of benefits that go far beyond the price tag.

Let’s take a brief look at the pros and cons. Mined diamonds are very expensive and get even more expensive if you look into larger sizes and higher clarity grades. Of course, if you are to consider something exotic such as a pink diamond, it will be a definite bank breaker. Additionally, it is not always easy to ignore the tainted origins of every single natural diamond in the market.

Costume Jewellery – Everlasting Beauty

http://www.fantasyfair.com.au/stock/2006_1.jpg

Costume Jewelry is forever. It transcends time and age. Right from creating jewellery items out of flowers and pebbles, to adopting metals like gold and silver for longevity, jewellery has always been popular. While some designs are more suitable to a particular time, there are others have seemed to be just as magnetic thousands of years after they were designed. A few so called evergreen designs, continue to form a part of almost all jewelry stores, all over the globe.

Be in Helen of Troy or Cleopatra or for that matter the more contemporary Madonna, women have always adorned jewellery to enhance their look. While women are often associated with jewellery, this is not to say the men are far behind. Right from bracelets, rings to neck pieces; jewellery is loved by men and women alike. The magnetism of a finely crafted jewellery piece is unequalled by any other accessory and the fact that it can be easily handed down through generations adds to its charm.

The magnetism of well crafted jewellery makes it highly desired. No other accessory is as impactful as jewellery that combines fine quality and good workmanship. While platinum and gold jewellery has been rather popular especially on the red carpet, lately we find that costume jewelry is not far behind. Nevertheless what is it about jewellery that makes is so much more desired and valued as opposed to other accessory items.

The fact that jewellery is seen as an investment over and above being just an accessory is one of the main reasons for its popularity. Unlike other accessories such as bags, shoes and watches that loose value over time, jewellery is seen as an investment that will rise in value over the years and can be easily converted, if need be, into liquid cash.

Of course gold is seen as much more of an investment as opposed to silver jewelry but fine silver jewelry has indeed carved a niche for itself over the last few years. The affordability of fine silver jewellery is highly luring for buyers, though gold jewellery still rules the international market due to its better resale value. However, be it gold or silver jewellery, its charm lies in the flawless execution of its designs.

Be it contemporary designs or those inspired from the age old Scottish era, the trick to identify costume jewelry is, understanding the perfect blend of aesthetic designs and authentic metals. One without the other cannot be classified as good jewellery. Fake jewellery pieces not only rob your pocket but, could also damage your skin over time. So, when looking to buy platinum, gold or sterling silver jewelry, keep in mind that the metal must be of pure content. One must ensure that the jewellery being bought is authentic over and above being appealed too. Therefore, it is recommended that the purchase be made from a dependable source and a certificate of authentication be got too.

Indeed, it is true that costume jewelry has much more than just cosmetic advantages, though having all eyes on your when you enter a party is definitely a great attraction when setting off to buy an adornment.

How to Clean Titanium Jewelry

Titanium is a popular metal for jewelry because it is the hardest metal in the world. In fact, it is stronger than steel, despite its light weight, and is scratch-resistant. However, you must be careful when cleaning titanium jewelry because it will discolor even though it is difficult to mar the jewelry’s surface.

Instructions

  1. Fill the bowl about halfway with warm, soapy water. You can use as much soap as you want, but do not use an abrasive detergent or a harsh cleaning soap. These can discolor your jewelry and even scratch the surface of the stones.
  2. Wash the titanium jewelry in the warm, soapy water. If you have several pieces, submerge them all, then brush them gently with the soft baby toothbrush to remove any dirt residue and grime. Use circular motions, but do not scrub the jewelry with the brush. Be very gentle. If your titanium jewelry is colored, you should not use the brush; instead, rub it with a soft cloth.
  3. Rinse the jewelry off with warm water. Continue to hold the titanium jewelry over the bowl so that it does not get lost if you accidentally drop it.
  4. Dry the jewelry completely. Wipe the jewelry down with the clean, soft cloth. If you wish, you can allow it to air dry for about 15 minutes after you have dried it off by laying it on top of the clean cloth in a safe place.

How to Clean Stainless-Steel Jewelry

From watches to wedding rings, stainless-steel jewelry has a lot going for it. It’s handsome–it resembles platinum, but it’s much stronger and less expensive. It’s not prone to rust or tarnish, and it’s easy to clean. Here’s how to keep stainless-steel jewelry looking its best.

How to Clean Stainless Steel Jewelry

  1. Keep your stainless-steel jewelry free of dust and dirt. With a soft cloth, gently rub on a little warm, soapy water (dish-washing detergent is fine). Follow the grain of the stainless steel to avoid scratches. Next, apply plain warm water with a cloth, or dip your piece in the water. Gently wipe dry with another soft cloth.
  2. To clean grimier stainless-steel pieces, use a soft cloth to apply toothpaste–again following the grain of the steel. You want plain white toothpaste that doesn’t contain silica. Use a soft toothbrush to reach any etched areas. Afterward, apply plain warm water with a cloth, or dip your piece in the water. You may need to use a clean toothbrush to remove remaining toothpaste. Gently wipe dry with another soft cloth.
  3. Polish your jewelry with a nontoxic stainless steel polish or polishing cloth–both are available in jewelry stores and online (See Resources below). Avoid abrasive cleaners that can scratch the surface.

Traditional Indian Bridal Jewelry

An Indian wedding is not complete without bridal jewelry.
A wedding is a milestone in a woman’s life. This is also true in Indian culture, where adorning the bride in jewelry is an integral part of the wedding day. Traditional Indian bridal jewelry consists of a complete set of jewelry to beautify each part of the bride’s body.

Only Gold

  • Fake or imitation jewelry may suffice for other occasions, but when it comes to weddings and jewelry for the Indian bride, only gold jewelry will do. Almost every middle- and high-class Indian family spends a considerable amount of money on bridal jewelry. Those who cannot afford expensive jewelry make do with a few basic pieces for the bride — a gold ring, necklace and bracelets. Different stones like diamond, pearl, jade, amethyst, emerald and the like may embellish intricately designed gold jewelry for brides from wealthier families.

Head to Toe

  • It is common for Indian brides to be covered in jewelry from head to toe. Brides from rich families may wear a tiara made of gold. However, the most popular piece of jewelry that adorns the head of an Indian bride is a golden pendant hanging from a golden string. The string is placed on the part of the hair of the bride. Some brides also adorn their back of their hair with golden clips.

Face and Neck

  • A golden nose stud is a must-have for Indian brides. A golden string may attach the nose stud to the back of the ears. Gold earrings also are chosen for the bride. The bride and her family members often spend hours selecting the right gold necklace and earrings, and jewelers get ready for the wedding season with a mind-boggling array of earrings and necklaces.

Arms

  • Armlets, bracelets and finger rings beautify the arms and hands of an Indian bride. Armlets may be worn on one or both arms, but gold bracelets have to be worn on both hands along with bangles. A bride may wear one or 10 finger rings, depending on her financial status. Gold strings may connect the bracelets and the finger rings.

Waist and Legs

  • A waist band is an ornament worn by brides belonging to rich families. The weight of a waist band may vary from a few grams to more than 2 pounds. Toe rings and anklets complete the traditional Indian bridal jewelry set. The anklets make a soft jingling noise when the bride walks.

The All-Important Necklace

  • The most important piece of bridal jewelry is the necklace that the bridegroom ties around the bride’s neck during the marriage ritual. This is known as the mangalsutra; it is made of gold and contains black beads to ward off evil eye. A wedding is assumed to be solemnized when the groom ties the necklace around the neck of the bride.

How to Claim a Lost Wedding Ring

A lost wedding ring may be covered under a homeowners policy.

It has been on your finger for years, then all of a sudden it’s gone. Depending on your homeowners insurance, it may be beneficial to file a claim for your lost wedding ring. The amount you receive will depend on the terms of your policy and the policy limits. Other factors include whether your policy contains a separate jewelry rider and offers replacement value. Replacement value yields a higher amount as it is based on today’s pricing rather than the price from years ago when the item was purchased.

Instructions

  1. Find your homeowners insurance policy. Read the coverage amounts for personal property claims and jewelry. Look for the agent’s phone number.
  2. Call the insurance agent. Explain that you want to file a claim for a lost wedding ring. Ask whether a written request is necessary and what documentation he needs.
  3. Contact the jewelry store where the ring was purchased. Explain that you lost your wedding ring and would like a replacement. Request the fax number and fax a photograph of the ring to the jeweler. Request a written estimate of the replacement cost of the ring for the insurance claim.
  4. Prepare your documentation for the insurance claim. Copy the initial receipt and recent appraisals. Blow up pictures that show the details on the ring. Complete the claim form, if one was sent, and include the date of purchase, type of jewels, number of jewels and initial cost and replacement cost of the ring. Include the jeweler’s written estimate in the packet.
  5. Send the packet to the agent and the insurance adjuster on the case. Call the agent and adjuster if you have not received a call within the week. Ask him if the packet has been received and whether other documentation is required for the claim.
  6. Find out how long it will take to process the claim. Mark the date on your calendar. Contact the adjuster if there has been no correspondence or phone call about the claim.
  7. Discuss the claim with the adjuster when he does call you. Listen to the amount quoted for the wedding ring. Accept the amount if it will cover the cost of the ring or is the policy limit.
  8. Negotiate the replacement value of the ring if all the adjuster offers is the initial value. Remind the adjuster of the estimate and the cost to make the ring. Explain the importance of having the same ring, stating that you were under the impression the ring would be replaced. Negotiate up until you reach an offer that is acceptable to you, then take it.
  9. Sign the release of claim documents the adjuster sends to your home. Return the document by mail. Cash the check.

The Pros & Cons of Titanium Rings

Titanium is similar to white gold in appearance.
If you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to the gold rings that are traditional for weddings and special occasions, titanium might provide a solution. Similar in appearance to white gold, this sturdy metal can stand in for its more expensive cousins. Titanium is already in use by jewelers, so you should have no trouble finding styles that suit your needs. As with all things, titanium jewelry offers both advantages and disadvantages you should be aware of before you buy.

What Is Titanium?

  • Titanium is an abundant metallic element that is used to make jewelry, golf clubs, watches and even aircraft. It was discovered in the late 18th century and was named after the Titans, mythical Greek giants who ruled the earth and personified different forces of nature. Titanium is one of the transitional elements on the periodic table of elements and is found in many forms.

Benefits

  • Titanium is lightweight, which makes the ring comfortable and easy to wear. It is a strong and resistant metal. It is much less expensive than other ring materials, such as gold or platinum, yet it is attractive enough for use as wedding jewelry. Titanium is hypoallergenic, so it is perfect for anyone with metal allergies. Unlike white gold, titanium can be left as is and will continue to look great over the years, instead of needing the occasional recoating that white gold needs. Also, titanium can be colored into a wide variety of colors.

Disadvantages

  • Titanium cannot be made into a ring with a prong setting, so it can’t be used for a traditional-looking engagement ring unless the prong setting is made of a different metal and riveted onto the titanium. People can avoid this by having only the groom’s wedding band made out of titanium and using a different material for the bride’s set. Another disadvantage is that titanium rings can be difficult to fit. Titanium cannot be soldered, so if your ring is too large, it cannot be made smaller. If you need it made larger, the only option is to remove the material from the inner part of the band to make it slightly bigger.

Other Considerations

  • While titanium is surprisingly strong for how lightweight it is, it can still show signs of scratching and other wear. Titanium can usually be polished by a jeweler. If you want a colored titanium ring, consider that the color can wear and may need to be reapplied periodically.

Potential for You

  • Whether a titanium ring is right for you depends on what you want. If you want a diamond engagement ring that matches the wedding band and that can be resized easily in the future, then a titanium ring is probably not right for you. However, if you’re looking for a ring that is lightweight, attractive and relatively inexpensive, it may be just right.

How to Rent Expensive Jewelry From Hollywood

How to Rent Expensive Jewelry From Hollywood

So you didn’t win an Oscar. There is no reason that because you are not a celebrity you can’t dress like one, including the fabulous jewelry. Follow these steps to learn how to rent expensive jewelry from Hollywood.

Instructions

  1. Inquire at a local jeweler in Hollywood about pieces that they may have available for rental purposes. Many jewelers may want you to have an existing relationship with them and this is how celebrities get jewelry loaned to them because they have a relationship with the retailer. Try Melrose Jewelers on Santa Monica Boulevard as they are one of the finest jewelers in the city, or the most well-known of all jewelers, Harry Winston. Harry Winston is famous for loaning jewelry to Hollywood celebrities. You can call the jeweler and describe exactly what you are looking for.
  2. If you are not local or living in Hollywood, then rent from jewelry rental companies online for the finest jewelry that Hollywood has to offer. There are several online companies that rent jewelry and the process is the same as in person, plus they are still based in Hollywood. These will offer jewelry that possibly was loaned to celebrities.
  3. Place a deposit down for your chosen pieces of jewelry whether you are in the actual store or online. The going rate is around 25 percent of the rental price as you reserve the jewelry. The jewelry will then be shipped to you or delivered via courier (if you are in the local Hollywood area) within a few days of the event. Depending on the retailer, approximately 5 to 10 percent of the actual retail value will be held on your credit card as a temporary deposit. The hold will then be released once the jewelry is returned.
  4. Take out a short-term insurance policy if necessary. This is in the case of extremely expensive jewelry that you could in no way afford to replace. Make sure that anything you rent is insured for full replacement value and with a low or no deductible. This protects you and the jeweler.
  5. Return the jewelry promptly after your event. Most places provide a self-addressed, insured package that can be picked up by the shipper at your convenience. Always use the package given to you to protect the item and for easy return tracking.

How to Create New Jewelry From an Old Wedding Ring

Jewelry is always an accessory that can enhance any outfit and express how you feel. Sometimes old pieces of jewelry can be recreated for a whole new look.

Instructions

  2. Look at jewelry catalogs or websites to get ideas of what kind of style you like. Do you like more classic pieces? Something with an antique feel? Or do you want to create a more modern piece? Collect pictures of pieces you like.
  3. Take the ring and the pictures you acquired to a reputable jeweler, preferably one you have used in the past. Consult with the jeweler and see what fresh ideas they can give you as well.
  4. Speak your mind. Make sure the jeweler understands what your concept is for the piece.
